Space Jam: Check Out The Singing Comet's Trippy Soundtrack

    Here's a spacey soundtrack, recorded some 310 million miles away (somewhere between the orbital path of Mars and Jupiter) on the surface of a moving comet dubbed 67P (or for all the Russians in the house, Churyumov-Gerasimenko). As you probably read on a website that actually should be reporting on this kind of heroic, scientific achievement, yesterday the European Space Agency plunked something called the Philae probe down on the surface of the comet...the final destination of a journey that launched off the surface of the Earth over a decade ago. The probe has already beamed back a photo of the icy space dust it's currently hitching a ride to.

    But, and here's where it kind of becomes our business (because it's so freaking cool!) the probe also unexpectedly detected a 'song' sourced from oscillations in the magnetic field in the comet's environment. Scientists believe it's produced by the comet as it releases various particles into space. Sung at 40-50 millihertz, the song is well below anything human hearing can detect. Lucky for us the ESA has some ace sound engineers, jacking up the frequency with extremely trippy results. Put that new Pink Floyd album on pause for a moment and have a listen to "The Singing Comet". Talk about far out...
